Barcelona Wine Bar and Restaurant - A little Spain in Atlanta

Barcelona Wine Bar and Restaurant
240 N. Highland Avenue
Atlanta, GA 30307

Talk about a fun restaurant in a great neighborhood! I don't know much about Atlanta. I get there once a year for Easter and I usually don't get to go out, but this time we stopped for brunch on the way back to my friends' house. There is a little neighborhood with a bunch of independent restaurants and shops named Poncey Highlands. It reminds me of what 14th St. in DC was a couple of years ago. Not ten years ago, more like five. 8)
We started out with some meats and cheeses. We had them bring three plates.
All of the plates were tasty and came with a little fruit and some gelee'/jam type item that was quite good.
Who doesn't like good charcuterie?
Mmm. Porky goodness.
Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures of the restaurant, but it is similar to the one in DC. Lots of wood, black and white photos of celebs from way back, and big chalk boards with the menu and specials over the bar. There is also plenty of outdoor seating and a fire pit! Nice touch.
However, I digress. The entree was nicely grilled flat-iron steak with truffled sauce and a side of soft eggs. Of course I dumped the eggs over the steak and ate them with the gooey yolk mixing with the truffle sauce. Nice.
I have to say though, for a quick bite of some really good charcuterie and cheese and a glass of wine in a very cozy atmosphere you'd be hard pressed to find better.
If you go, ask for Canyon. She was very accommodating to the six of us (including 2 kids) even though we switched tables and took a long time to settle down.
Stop in, check out the 'hood! Tell them you read about it here.
